Speak your truths clearly
To find your passion, you must speak your truths and prepare yourself for new adventures. Finding your passion begins with you answering these questions.
Q. What really matters to you?

Q. What truly makes you happy?
Q. What drives you crazy?

Q. What do you do best?

Q. And what makes you feel complete?

Once you begin challenging your mind with these questions, your mind will provide the answers and once you have figured out the answers, you are on your way to finding your passion.

[sws_blockquote_endquote align=”left” quotestyle=”style02″]Whether you’ve found your calling, or if you’re still searching, passion should be the fire that drives your life’s work. [/sws_blockquote_endquote]

Be open for support

You must also keep in mind that you are not an isolated being. Sometimes in life, it takes external influence and inspiration to find your passion. Therefore you need the support of family, friends and positive minded social circle that will help you reach your goals.

[sws_blockquote_endquote align=”left” quotestyle=”style02″]Be careful of the environment you choose for it will shape you. Be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them. [/sws_blockquote_endquote]

– W. Clement Stone

Keep an open mind

You need to keep an open mind to find your passion. When you open up your senses, you tend to experience God’s blessings and you feel more peaceful and serene. This allows you to be more patient and be reminded the cycle of nature. When you experience this, you become more positive and calm.

Keeping an open mind allows you to observe your environment and how it relates to you. One thing you must note is this you might not be the one to discover your passion. Someone else might and you need an open mind to take note of such. Observe the traits and talent you possess that your friends and family admire a lot.

For instance, Debbi Fields was constantly praised by her family and friends because of her ability to bake delicious cookies and she was able to respond positively to those compliments by starting a business around that passion.

If Debbi Fields hadn’t kept an open mind, I don’t think Mrs. Field’s Cookies will be in existence today.

[sws_blockquote_endquote align=”left” quotestyle=”style02″]You know, all these years, all these years you’ve been eating my cookies. All these years you’ve been telling me how wonderful they are. Well, I’ve decided I’m going to go into the cookie business. [/sws_blockquote_endquote]

Give yourself a time for pleasure

How do you feel waking up in the morning away from busy schedules and having the freedom to do the things that bring you pleasure? Well, following your passion can put you in such state of mind and lifestyle.

To find your passion, you must allow yourself a time for pleasure. For many people, allowing pleasures induces guilt as they tend to feel it is not productive and hinders you from getting important things accomplished. But this view of pleasure is actually a matter of opinion.

Gentle pleasures are good to your health and are productive. By allowing yourself time for pleasure, you become more focused and passionate in your job. Most importantly, you will have the right aura to decide what’s best for you and what your passion is.

Liberate yourself

A person who finds his or her passion is a truly wise person. Doing a work that reflects your personality and values promises you a lifelong happiness and contentment. It is easier and liberating when we accept who we are and we allow other people to accept us too. The human psyche is a holistic system, to numb one part of our being is to numb the rest and create constant struggle.

[sws_blockquote_endquote align=”left” quotestyle=”style02″]Remain true to yourself and your philosophy. [/sws_blockquote_endquote]

– Giorgio Armani

To be able to discover and harness your passion, you must accept and appreciate who you are. I have seen people with talents that seem weird to others I have also seen people with gifts that are psychic in nature but they get rejected by the society.

Feed yourself with affirmations

Positive affirmations are important to finding your passion in life as it makes you feel secure and optimistic about reaching your goals. A lot of people don’t get to their destinations out of fear of failure.
You should not allow yourself to get upset by some downturns in life instead, pull yourself together and get on track again.

Some people might influence you into thinking negatively. It may not be so easy to shut them out of your life but it’s easier to practice blocking the negative energies that they bring into your life it keeps your sanity.

Never ever allow cynics and naysayers get the best of you. Remember, you are unique and you have a purpose or mission here on earth so it’s up to you to find this purpose.

As a final note, you should know that finding your passion is an endless song an ever going process. You don’t just find your passion and sit there instead, you find your passion and make something worthwhile out of it.

[sws_blockquote_endquote align=”left” quotestyle=”style02″]I had to make my own living and my own opportunity. But I made it! Don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them. [/sws_blockquote_endquote]

– Madame C. J. Walker

When you do the things that you are passionate about, you allow your life to flourish. You let yourself connect to everything you are – in mind, in heart, and in spirit. When you find and follow your passion, you emerge a stronger person that can face challenges better because you are reinforced by being able to do the things you love.

By finding your passion and sticking to it you feel more alive, positive, self-respecting, and determined. You live your life with confidence and high morale and the best of it all is that you feel you are contributing goodness and positivism to the people in your life. So challenge yourself to get up, find your passion and make it a reality.

This is a very common question for startups and small businesses. They can’t seem to decide or understand how to set wages and manage reputations at a time. They are determined to pay well but they also have to think about encouraging their employees to stay with them for a long time. This is why there is a need to think strategically.

Listed below are a few expert tips to help you decide:
